Bible Memory:

1 John 4:7-14

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.

Reminders and Other Information:

  • Bring in your Home Reading
  • Spring Sing – kids can wear jeans/shorts and a white t-shirt with flip flops or sandals – be in the classroom at 6:15 to get ready

Weekly Update

What a great and busy week! Pictures on Monday … thank you for remembering to wear full dress uniform (which is now done for the rest of the year). We had our Celebration of Learning on Tuesday, where we played a bunch of team games. We first spent some time reflecting on what we have learned this year and it was so fun to look back and let the students think about how much they have grown and learned since the beginning of the year! They have come so far and learned so much! Wednesday was Jeans Day, thanks for participating in support of the Children’s Hospital, as well as we had our Stranger Danger assembly. Always good to talk about this and be reminded of how to keep ourselves safe. And we ended our week with Superhero Dress Up day. Great to see all the fun and creative super heroes in Grade Two!

Friday Update

What a great week with lots going on! We had our First Nations Cultural Day, which was busy with switching from one station to another learning about different areas of the First Nations Culture. Art, food, totem poles, games, hunting/fishing … all sorts of good stuff. Also a huge thanks for supporting and participating in Jersey Day. It’s beautiful to watch our community and our country come together in support of the families and communities that have been devastated by this tragic event. And finally, swimming this afternoon was a blast! I love being able to just have fun and enjoy time with the students in such an enjoyable way (although I must admit, I am pretty tuckered out now that it’s over!)

Jersey Day Tomorrow

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow will be Jersey Day because we want to stand with this community in whatever way that we can. Students are invited to wear a jersey to school. It doesn’t have to be a hockey jersey;  it could be any sports-related jersey, Broncos’ colours or even Knight wear.

We will also be accepting donations. There will be a large jar in the school foyer for cash and the office will accept cheques and debit cards.  We will likely send all monies through GoFundMe.  Thanks for your support.
